What Kind Of Flower Is This?

Does anyone know what kind of flower this is?
Out of an entire area of wildflowers, only two of these came up this year… I'm curious as to what they are. Its purple color was a really nice contrast against the other flowers (before the weeds took over).

    It looks like it's a "Purple Aster"

    I concur on aster of some type, via Peterson's Field Guide.

    Profusely branched annual or biennial to 3 ft. which becomes a solid mound of lilac in autumn. Blooms low if mowed in spring. Abundant & spectacular along roadsides, purple aster blooms at the same time as Chamisa, making a wonderful color combination. Plant anytime, early fall is best. Water for more abundant flowering.
